Tinea is caused by a fungus, is an infectious skin disease. The presence of fungi on the lesion, and continue to produce a large number of growth and reproduction of hyphae and spores. If the normal exposure to the skin lesion is likely to be infected with tinea disease, may be others, can also be normal skin itself. This infection is called direct contact infection. If people suffering from ringworm to shake hands with others can infect each other. Ringworm can also be transmitted indirectly. The patient suffering from all kinds of appliances used, such as combs, pillows, hats, underwear, shoes and socks and a bathtub can be fungal contamination, healthy human contact or use of these appliances can also be infected. In addition, suffering from diseases of poultry or livestock such as moss, also can infect people.
Is it possible that a person or animal that is exposed to a disease must be infected?. First look at the pathogenicity of the size and number of fungi. At the same time, also depends on the strength of personal resistance.
Of course, some people will ask: if you do not have contact with the patient and their products, will get ringworm?. Because the fungus is widely distributed in nature, we often have a variety of skin and mucous membrane of the body, there is also a fungus in the air. If there are conditions for the growth and reproduction of the fungus on our skin, the fungus in our body or the fungus in the air may grow and develop into a disease. Can be seen, not only by the incidence of infectious diseases, but also by the air or the presence of the fungus itself.
